Create a animated Avatar or Sign from PNG-Files with FFmpeg to WEBM

Code: Select all

ffmpeg -i image%02d.png -c:v libvpx -minrate 1M -maxrate 1M -filter:v "setpts=2.0*PTS" -b:v 1M -c:a libvorbis output.webm
In the current folder you have to place the PNG files, the name of them should be "image01.png", "image02.png"... "image99.png".

If the PNG files have a transparent background, then the resulting webm movie has that also and that is working in Maniaplanet.

If you want to speed up/slow down the animation speed, you can change the "setpts=2.0*PTS", details you can find here: ... 2c-asetpts.

Besides WebM, there are a open source format known in Linux community as Theora (.ogv or .ogg). It is from the same Foundation that comes Vorbis (.ogg) audio format -
ManiaPlanet is supporting this format (for replay exporting)?

One format for animation is enough. BIK was cool, has very nice tool to convert anything to bik but UBI/Nadeo knows better. It will be safer if nobody suggest new formats that can replace old ones. :) I don't want to convert all my animations again. :P

Found a easy way to convert bik to webm without any dealing with installing ffmpeg or similar, just download WinFF from here >
and these additional presets > ... l?part=0.1

Import these presets by clicking File > Import presets , do your settings and hit convert - done.
(Preferred setting for webm output is "Google" > "Google Webm Generic Widescreen" ; you can also adjust the convert settings in the ffmpeg card // hit options button up right to see them)
WinFF is free :thumbsup:
Basically it´s a GUI for ffmpeg
